Greetings!

 

I am working on this system as it would not post when bought new from store. So I replaced the motherboard and cpu as follows; MSI 760GM-P34 MB  with the AMD FX-8300 CPU, and reinstalled everything else. The case came with a 350 watt psu.

 

I still can not get the system to post, here is what i tried already.

Disconnected everything but 1 stick of RAM - nothing

Connected and disconnected everything one by one - Nothing.

I dont have a keyboard attached, dont think that would stop it from posting,... the only thing left is memory or the psu, right?

I tried different configurations with the 2 sticks of memory, different banks, sticks, etc. Nothing.

I do get 3 beeps when NO RAM is installed, so I am thinking its the psu?  As I said this system came with a 350 watt psu, I have one on the way at 400 watts. 

The motherboard standoffs are intact, any ideas or insight would be greatly appreciated!

Well .. If it was bought new from the store and wouldn't post (not sure why you didn't return it right then and there.  And then you replace the motherboard and chip and it still won't post, than it COULD be the PSU .. .some cases have a case switch that disables the PSU from powering the board when the case is not fully closed.  Could that be your problem?

The reason it was not returned is beyond me, not my computer, I am working on this for a friend.

And I did look for a case switch, none. I will install the new psu when it arrives, hope this solves it.

 

thanks for your time.
